PSG's Tuchel reacts to Florentino comments on signing Mbappé
After Paris Saint-Germain notched up another league win, their manager was asked about the Real Madrid president's preference to sign his stars.
Thomas Tuchel appeared in front of the press room after Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 victory over Dijon by four goals to nil. The coach was asked about the comments of Real Madrid president, Florentino Pérez, of the previous day about signing star player Kylian Mbappé.
Everyone wants to sign my PSG stars
During the dinner for Esteban Granero, Florentino spoke to the media on the back of Zinedine Zidane being named the club's new manager. When asked who he would choose to sign between Neymar and Mbappé, his response was "Both!"
Tuchel was blunt when he was asked about that interaction.
"Everyone wants Neymar, Mbappé, Verratti, and Marquinhos in their team, it does not bother me that he said that."
The manager also spoke of his side's confidence at the moment, despite being shocked last week in the Champions League, and sent a message to the supporters.
"I hope that the fans also show that they are with us and that we are all united."
